Blitz Logo History
The Chicago Blitz was one of the most iconic teams in the United States Football League (USFL) during its short three-year run. The team’s logo was a testament to their hard-hitting style and represented an enduring symbol of football excellence in Chicago.
When the USFL launched, it gave fans another opportunity to watch professional football on Sundays. This new league also provided a platform for creative minds to design logos that would capture its spirit and energy, including those for all 12 charter members—including the Chicago Blitz.
The original logo featured an angry bulldog with a spiked collar wearing a helmet with “C” on it – representing both their city and nickname – set against a white background surrounded by red stripes which mimicked lightning bolts; thus creating what is now known as “the Lightning Dog Logo” or simply just "Blitz." It became one of several memorable symbols associated with this upstart franchise throughout its brief history, along with being worn proudly by players such as quarterback Doug Flutie who led them to victory in 1984's championship game against Philadelphia Stars at Giants Stadium before they folded after two seasons due to financial difficulties caused by owner Eddie Einhorn's failed attempts at getting into Major League Baseball via his ownership stake in White Sox games broadcast rights deal negotiations gone wrong.
While some may have forgotten about this era of pro football altogether since then - especially considering that no other major sports leagues have given us similar opportunities since then - there are still many dedicated fans out there who fondly remember these days when they donned their beloved Blitz gear while cheering from home or attending games live! So if you ever find yourself looking back nostalgically at your favorite childhood memories involving America's favorite sport: look no further than remembering how much fun watching The Windy City Bears roar onto our TV screens every Sunday afternoon was thanks largely due not only great players but also because everyone loved seeing that cool lightning dog logo too!
